Snow and snuggle weather has officially arrived. Whether hosting a destination wedding or on your honeymoon, it's time to cuddle up. Well, check out PlumpJack Squaw Valley Inn in Lake Tahoe. Nestled away in the hillside and delicately covered in snow during the winter months, it’s a seductive boutique hotel ideal for a romantic getaway.
Spend your days learning the art of shredding by taking snowboarding lessons with Squaw Valley USA and spend your evening hours either in the outdoor hot tubs soaking your sore muscles or by the fireplace sipping Irish coffee in the cozy lounge.
Hit the slopes mid-week to take advantage of amazing mid-week rates which means staying four nights and getting the fifth night for free. Or, become a 2010/11 Squaw Valley USA or Alpine Meadows Season Pass Holder and receive 15% off your stay during the winter months. These are just a few romantic ways to keep warm and active this winter!
